Like staying in your favorite aunts back yard, only with full amenities.

It is small, and small is its charm.


If new clothes make the man, new managers can make the park.
In the world where faster is better, Corbett RV park bucks the system and encourages you to slow down. With 22 spots surrounded in trees and mature landscaping, you quickly feel settled into home, at the west end-south side of the scenic Columbia Gorge, Hwy US 30. Bathrooms are neat and clean, hot showers are .25 cents for nine minutes and the laundry facility is similar to a decent laundromat, not just one old washer and dryer. Water and sewer connections were easy to access and adequate. We found our host Andre and Debbie, to be friendly but not an invasive species. They greeted us warmly and told us the need to know things about the local area, such as road closures, and the best places to buy things we'd left at home, even the cheapest propane filling station nearby.

The park has some full time residents, but it doesn't feel like a version of a trailer park that allows or condescends to rvs. All the rvs are clean and well maintained, yards are pleasant and add to a neighborhood feeling. We met a family of 4 that stayed the night, who lived in California but had arrived from Astoria, Oregon, where they started a dream. They were biking across the USA from Oregon to Boston as a family with a tent trailer that mom pulled as the support crew. Good luck Rollin Family! It's the kind of park you can keep to yourself, or sit and visit over a plate of warm brownies and talk traveler talk across picnic tables at each site.Tucked behind the Corbett fire station you might anticipate it being noisy. We stayed Friday thru Sunday on Memorial Day Weekend and although there were calls, there were no sirens.
The Corbett store, a five minute stroll west from the park, is a step back in time the way you think you remember the little general store on the old country road you love. It has a vast variety of microbrews, it's own beautiful meat market and deli, as well as gas oven pizza by the slice. Prices are not gouging, but reasonable. There is one old gas pump that carries both diesel and gas that still fills the traveler tank trying to get back into town.
Crown Point RV park is ideally situated to the fisherman, boater, hiker, biker, or Urban Crawler who wants all the nearby city life of a metro city like Portland, good roads and access, AND a stunning hideaway location. Situated 20 miles east of Portland, Oregon at the base of Larch Mountain, as well as the west end of the scenic highway US ROUTE 30, it is a great jumping off point.
Parallelling and sitting above I-84 just minutes from the freeway exit, you find yourself less than forty-five minutes to destinations such as the fish hatchery, Cascade Locks, and Bridge of the Gods. Corbett Rv park also puts you within an hour of the infamous Hood River wind surfing, vineyards and wine tasting, Hood River Air museum (they have working models of planes, cars, and motorcycle there), orchards, hiking and biking paths. Just below the park sits the Sandy River for fishing, boat ramps to the Columbia River, and you are a stones throw from the historic Women’s Forum, Vista House, Multnomah Falls, and five other famous waterfalls that can be seen from the road, all on a breathtaking, winding drive, just ten minutes from your door. I might caution the travel trailer or coach driver, this adventure is more of a chaser car drive, as there is 25 foot combined vehicle length limit on this road. On a busy traveled weekend, frankly a trailer is too much rig to share the road comfortably with an oncoming SUV. This quaint but maintained road was built as one of the first paved roads for car touring in the state. In an era punctuated by the model T- the narrow lanes and curvy switchbacks still reflect the era when it was built using 1930’s Europe roads as a model. There are many state parks along this stretch, but parking can often be a challenge, even though many turnouts and parking lots are nicely paved and maintained. Road and Vista House construction continues, so it might be good to ask the hosts about the road closure status of the road. We pulled a 1970 Shasta 12’ travel trailer. We paid with a Passport America Membership, $15.00 a night. I believe the going rate without the discount was $30. The new managers Debbie and Andre of Crown Point RV sure know how to treat a traveler; and the Columbia Gorge Scenic Highway US 30, sure knows how to treat the outdoor lover and adventurer.
